Case study - Kalifa Bin Salman Port at Hidd, Bahrain






Kalifa Bin Salman Port at Hidd, Bahrain

An important hub for cargo within the Middle East, this port was built on 400 hectares of land reclaimed from the existing Hidd port’s basin, berths and shipping channels. The 1,800m long, 15m deep quay wall houses two container berths, a general cargo berth, 1,500 metres of additional berthing and associated docking facilities.

We were commissioned by the port owner and operators, APM, to design and install a robust, state-of-the-art floodlighting system that would be both moisture resistant and easy to maintain.


The solution: fourteen 40m and twenty-six 35m masts - base-hinged for easy lantern access and a proven, trusted technology worldwide. All fitted with Rhea 1kW floodlights - specially designed to IP66 to protect against the excess moisture inevitable in a port setting. Since working with APM, we’ve gained worldwide acclaim and repeat business in other ports - not just because of the strength of our product, but also the single-solution design and installation package we developed hand-in-hand with the port’s consultant.
